I know, I know.
This absence has been atrocious.
Let me explain.
Last summer, I came to realize that the battery of my trusty laptop was dying. Easy enough, right? I went to the local computer shop, ordered a new battery, and went on with my life. Then I installed the Witcher 3 – a newer game on my older computer (the computer turned five this past November) that I expected to run on high settings like it did for other games, not realizing the grave error of my ways.
The intake for the fan was on the left side. The outtake was on the right. The plugin for the AC adapter was also on the right. So it got really hot as the computer struggled to keep up with the high graphics settings of the Witcher and overheated the plug.
So, while the computer still technically works, I don’t want to work on a technicality. I have been without a computer since last, oh, September?
